Silver Street Development, Crosby Ravensworth has been awarded the ‘Best Large Housing Development’ at the Northern Region Local Authority Building Control Excellence awards.
In addition to this award 6 other nominations across 4 categories reached the finalist stage including Best Community Building - Eden Rural Foyer, Penrith and Best Social or Affordable Housing - Ridley Court Development, Penrith.
The Building Excellence Awards are all about the essence of good buildings and the finalists are judged on the "Excellence" shown from a construction and technical building control point of view. The awards showcase buildings and design teams that have had to tussle with technical issues, difficult sites, innovative and creative solutions.
Atkinson Building Contractors faced a huge amount of competition across the whole of the Northern Region encompassing 18 Local Authorities (Councils) throughout Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear & Durham. Winning is a significant accolade for everyone involved - congratulations and well done particularly to Lewis Austwick, Steve Pickering and Neil McKaskie.
The National Awards are to be held in London in November 2013 where Atkinson Building Contractors will be compared to the best of the best in the construction industry across the 12 Regions within the UK.
